Tour Description

The Hoysala Empire changed the landscape of modern-day Karnataka with its martial conquests and architectural exuberance. Their distinctive, elaborate architectural style - among the most unique of all South Indian temples - still survives in all its glory in the wonderlands of Belur and Halebidu. Visit these sites with passionate historian Anirudh Kanisetti, a specialist in ancient and medieval India. He speaks and writes extensively on the medieval Deccan, with two podcasts: Echoes of India and Yuddha, which explore the vast, vibrant beauty of ancient India. His writings have been published in Mint, The Print, the Deccan Herald, the New Indian Express, and Pragati. With his interactive and engaging storytelling, Anirudh will explain the vibrant, violent history of Southern Karnataka and put you in the footsteps of ancient sculptors, merchants, warriors, and kings whose actions loom over modern Bangalore.
